Champions League: Willian reacts to Barkley’s penalty miss against Valencia


Chelsea midfielder, Willian, has confirmed he asked to take the crucial penalty which Ross Barkley failed to convert, in their 1-0 Champions League loss to Valencia on Tuesday.

Barkley skimmed his attempt off the top of the crossbar in the 87th minute with the scoreline at 1-0.

The England midfielder had been introduced from the bench seven minutes earlier and grabbed the ball, following a debate with starters Willian and Jorginho.

Blues boss, Frank Lampard, later revealed Barkley to be the designated penalty taker.

But Willian admits he had hoped to be entrusted with the chance.
